If there was to be just one pop-culture character with 'franchise' written all over it, it would be Ace Ventura. After the sleeper hit that was the original, Ace is shipped off to Africa, via Tibet, to find the missing sacred animal of the peaceful Wachati tribe. It is supposed to be a wedding gift to the savage Wachutu tribe, marking the congregation of their people.

Ace is the best there is (the only there is) surely sending him to find the sacred bat (his most hated creature) is the 'right' thing to do. No matter how crazy he is. And how crazy indeed! This time around Jim Carrey goes completely wild as Ace. Any trace of an actual human that we saw before is surrendered to complete insanity. You can tell that Carrey is having the time of his life just ad-libbing and winging it. You can almost hear director Steve Oedekerk struggle to contain his laughter off-camera. There are even a few moments when Carrey himself almost cracks-up.

I prefer the sequel to the first for a few reasons. First of all the production design is far superior and the faux-African jungle (actually South Carolina) and tribal village colors really come alive. The widescreen photography gives the film a more expansive look than Tom Shadyac's original. Plus, it has a lot more animals, which I think is cool. You gotta love the 'alrighty then' meditation scene too.

Beside's the animated show (a few episodes are featured on this DVD set), there's been no more of Ace Ventura since. But don't rule him out. Carrey may be sick of being regarded as the guy who once made his anus talk, but I can only hope he'll do a third one day.

I'm a huge Jim Carrey fan and I'd heard of the two Ace Ventura movies a couple of times in the past, but I never really went out to look for them. Then I saw "When Nature Calls" at a friend's house and I was laughing hysterically the whole time.
The most hilarious parts in this movie are the "rhino giving birth" scene, the fact that whenever someone says "Shikaka", the Wachati tribe members present will kneel and Ace uses it as a sort of "Simon Says" game, the Wachutu tests, and the beginning when Ace uses a Slinky on those hundreds of stone steps singing "Everyone loves a Slinky, you gotta get a Slinky! Slinky, Slinky, go Slinky, GO!"
Summary: It's a great movie that will make all Jim Carrey fans laugh out loud at least once.

Ok I just dug up an old video of this movie and memories came floating back. When i was like 7 or 8 my parents bought the movie (oblivious to the rating) and i watched it again and again. Oh and after i watched it every time i started talking like him.

Man when i watched it now as 14 years old I got all the jokes. Their not that bad (if anyone watches Are You Being Served its about as bad as that)

its just so funny. I mean some of the non-sex jokes are kinda funny but over all its great.

Its a real family movie.

Jim Carry at his best.

Peace Out

Silly in an entirely different way from Pet Detective, you'll still be holding your sides in laughter during this movie. Unforgettable scenes.

Ah, Ace Ventura. . . Jim Carey was never better! Too bad he doesn't do more of these. I'd even say that he only went downhill from here!

Ace Ventura when nature calls is a simply hilarious film. I don't see why anybody shoudn't like it. But if your not a Jim Carrey fan it might not be your taste. Their are funny moments like: The monoply guy, The fake rhino giving birth and much more. It is a great sequel to the first film Ace Ventura pet detective. This time Ace finds himself in the jungles of africa rather in the first one it was city life. Aces hairdo is whacky and cool and the man who plays him is, Jim Carrey shows great enthusiasm throughout the film. I rate this 4/5. Silly but funny!
